The property

Within easy reach of stunning beaches, resorts and coves on the Cornish Riviera coastline, Well Cottage exceeds all expectations. Add a beautifully styled barn conversion to a quiet rural hamlet and this attractive homestay will appeal to friends, family and couples seeking a fusion of rural rambles and coastal capers. The vibrant harbour resort of Looe, the enigmatic fishing cove of Polperro and colourful Fowey are all nearby.

Well Cottage nestles near the village of Herodsfoot, 4 miles south west of Liskeard where four valleys meet with streams joining the west Looe River. Explore and discover the woodlands and spy the deer, or drive to historical Bodmin Moor, with ruggedly beautiful and wild landscape whispering legends and fables. The scenic resort of Looe is a great spot for boat excursions, beach escapades, harbour walks and refreshment. Step back in time and visit charismatic Polperro, a picturesque fishing village with spectacular sea and country views and galleries for perusal - don't miss the arts and musical festival in June. Fowey is easily reached via the Bodinnick ferry, with boutiques and art galleries and eateries for all tastes.

Well Cottage offers superbly presented and detached generously proportioned accommodation, over two floors. The sitting room is elegantly furnished and oozes comfort with leather sofas, a big wood burner, ceiling beams and chandeliers for added decadence, with French doors leading to one of the sunny patios. The kitchen is equally country smart with all the mod cons, and the dining room is ideal for food gatherings with sofa for relaxation too. The lower ground floor boasts two spaciously designed bedrooms, both with luxuriously large beds (one will convert to twin beds on request) and TV's, and the master offers an en-suite bathroom and French doors to another paved courtyard. For the energetic, the fitness room will get the heart pumping, or avoid the workout and simply sit back and relax in the sauna cabin. The family bathroom has a big, big bath plus a walk in cubicle for soaks and showers. Dine alfresco in the pretty landscaped garden, meander across the pasture or enjoy an evening glass of Shiraz on the bench seat.

About the location


Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Note: No children under 12 unless with prior arrangement. No smoking and no pets.
